My name is Gordon McLeman and I'm a self-taught artist based in Aberdeen Scotland, working mainly in watercolours.

I've had a varied career, from geophysicist in the Oil & Gas Industry to International Tax Specialist. I am now a full time artist living in Aberdeen, Scotland.

I paint whatever takes my fancy at but am happiest with sea-scapes and landscapes, from container ships to iconic buildings, and living in Aberdeen it's perhaps no surprise that I've painted quite a few oil & gas subjects and scenes of Scotland. I normally work in watercolour or pen and wash, in a range of styles depending on my mood at the time. I always use Winsor & Newton artists quality watercolour paints and Bockingford or The Langton paper.

I print my own work on a Canon printer using genuine Canon inks and Canon 260gm/m2 Pro Luster paper. This combination delivers exceptional long lasting prints with a beautiful lustre finish for great colour saturation and a soft feel, and will look great with a mount and framed in any environment

I offer to supply some of my prints framed to UK customers. I use either black, white or wood effect frames (either moulded, smooth or textured) with 'snow-white' or 'ice-white' mounts, depending on what I think looks best for the individual prints. These are the names given by my mount supplier. I would say that 'ice-white' is a bright pure white whereas 'snow-white' is slightly off-white.

Note that the watermarks seen on some of my screen images are for screen-view only, they are not added to the prints shipped to customers.

I offer the following print sizes.
Print Size 8 x 6 in (20.3 x 15.2 cm) Image Size 6 x 4 in (15.2 x 10.2 cm)
Print Size 12 x 8 in (30.5 x 20.3 cm) Image Size 9 x 6 in (22.9 x 15.2 cm)
Print Size 16 x 12 in (40.6 x 30.5 cm) Image Size 12 x 8 in (31.5 x 21.0 cm)
Print Size A4 (11.7 x 8.3 in) (29.7 x 21.0 cm) Image Size 9 x 6 in (22.9 x 15.2 cm)

Please note that 'print size' refers to the outer dimensions of the mount that the print is designed for. The prints I supply may be up to 1cm shorter to allow space for the print to be taped to the mount. The 'image size' is smaller and centred in the print with a white border. These are standard combinations of mount and image sizes so a ready-made mount and frame should easily be available locally if required.
